The break-up of a marriage, the death of a child, the loss of a job, a depression that won't go away. What do these have in common? They are all situations that can leave you feeling like God can't possible see you, let alone care. If he did, how could these things happen?
The God Who Sees You is an easy-to-read new book that reminds us that, like Hagar in the Bible, God does see not only each situation, but our hearts as well. And that is what we really want, isn't it? To know we are not forgotten, unimportant, or ignored, especially in the midst of a difficult situation. I've read books before that deal with question of God's presence when the unexpected happens, but not one with as much warmth and heart as this book. I think Tammy Maltby could be any woman's best friend if she talks the way she writes. Easy, open, deep.
The best part of this book is that it doesn't just examine what the Bible says and use examples from other people's lives; rather, the author opens her life, and the pain within, to the reader in order to demonstrate how she has seen God even when things looked dark. She also explains with certainly that she didn't just see God, but because of truths in the Bible, she is confident that God also sees her. And not just her, but you, as well.
If you are in a hard place, or simply feel like God isn't aware of you, if it seems like everyone else is getting gifts from God, except you, this is a book you should read. There are questions in the back to help process each chapter, and like a cheerleader, each chapter is full of encouragement to see our faithful and loving God even when life says otherwise.
